Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies

Ingredients:

Crust:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup cold water

Filling:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 egg
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup pecan halves
1 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, divided

Directions:

Add flour, sugar and salt to bowl of food processor. Pulse to combine. Add butter cubes and pulse until crumbs form. Turn machine on and slowly add water to food processor. Stop adding water when the dough forms into a ball (you may have water left over).

Divide the dough into two equal parts and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out until 1/4 inch thick. Using a pastry cutter, cut rounds slightly larger than the size of the mini muffin pans. Lightly spray pie pans with nonstick cooking spray and place each cut out inside. Cover and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
